Bill O'Brien praises Alfred Blue
by Larry Hartstein |

Texans rookie running back Alfred Blue, who filled in for the injured Arian Foster in Week 3, earned praise from coach Bill O'Brien on Monday. O'Brien called Blue "a big back," "a smart back," and "a tough kid" who "runs tough."

"I think he's the type of guy, who because of the way he works, he'll only get better," O'Brien said.

Blue ran for 78 yards on 13 carries and caught a 10-yard pass in the loss to the Giants.

Shane Lechler day to day with soft tissue injury
by Michael Hurcomb |

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said Monday punter Shane Lechler is day to day with an unspecified soft tissue injury

"Any of these guys that have what I would term as soft tissue whether it’s hamstrings or hip flexors, quad strains or whatever it might be, every one of them is day to day," O'Brien said, per ESPN. "Every morning we’ll come in and see how they’re doing. We’ll list it on the injury report as what basically they tell us." 

O'Brien indicated the team might need to have a contigency plan in place in case Lechler sits out Week 4 vs. Buffalo.

"Maybe you bring some guys in to take a look at in a workout," O'Brien said. "Maybe you have someone on your team that’s done it in the past that can do it. But we’re not at that stage yet where we have to decide it. Shane being the pro that he is he’s going to let us know how he feels and what he’s going to do."

Texans coach wants DeAndre Hopkins more involved
by Michael Hurcomb |

Texans coach Bill O'Brien was very complimentary Monday of second-year wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who is averaging 75.7 receiving yards per game and has two touchdowns through the first three weeks. 

O'Brien was impressed with Hopkins' one-handed catch that came off the board because of a penalty on offensive lineman Tyson Clabo. 

"It was a fantastic catch," O'Brien said. "He's having a really good year. We need to do a better job of getting him the ball."

Arian Foster uncertain if he will be back Week 4
by Michael Hurcomb |

Texans running back Arian Foster is unsure if he will return from a hamstring injury Week 4 against the Bills and said Monday he remains "day to day."

"As soon as I feel 100 percent, I’ll be out there," Foster said, per The Houston Chronicle. "It’s my hamstring’s call."

Foster worked out before Sunday's game against the Giants and admitted his leg felt "really good," but "obviously" not good enough for him to play.

"I’ve played through a lot in this league -- knees, shoulders, broken bones -- but hamstrings are the hardest thing to gauge," Foster said, "because you don’t know how it’s going to fatigue or react to a certain cut."

Texans struggle to stop the run during Week 3 loss
by Michael Hurcomb |

The Texans defense had its worst performance of the season during a 30-17 loss Week 3 at N.Y. Giants. Not only did the Giants total three touchdowns and three field goals, but they finished with 419 yards, which included 176 rushing yards from Rashad Jennings.

The Texans did force a fumble down inside the 5-yard line as the Giants were driving for a score in the first half. They also got a sack from J.J. Watt, while linebacker Brian Cushing finished with a team-high 17 tackles (eight solo). Safety Kendrick Lewis had a team-high 11 solo tackles and finished with 12 total tackles and one forced fumble.

The Texans will look to rebound Week 4 vs. Buffalo.
